Market
“This one has been a local favorite for a while; It's on every Saturday and Sunday Morning; they have recently started doing Wednesday evenings too. From their website: "Why you’ll love it The Oranjezicht City Farm Market is a wonderfully chilled and festive place to do your weekly food shopping – you’ll find fresh-from-the-patch veggies and herbs, fruit, bread, organic dairy products, free-range eggs, raw honey, muesli, and ethically sourced meats and seafood. Plus, there’s an array of artisanal food stalls selling amazing cooked and raw dishes for all palates and preferences, from carnivores to vegans, chocoholics to diabetics. And if the food offering wasn’t enough, there’s also a section selling a carefully curated selection of clothing, vintage items, shoes, houseplants and farm-to-vase flowers. There’s plenty of outdoor seating, space for the kids and dogs, and a family-friendly vibe with foot-tapping music."”

Restaurant

“This popular burger spot serves its glorious patties from lunch until 11pm and is a great place to linger before or after an event at the stadium. Tuck into a rich Rockafella burger with eight-hour roasted pulled pork, cheddar cheese and a fried egg, or a simple cheeseburger with tomato relish and cheddar. Not in the mood for a burger? Try one of their cheesy pizzas. They also do takeaways for those midweek pick-me-ups.”
